  • 1. Enhancing Profitability through Co-Located Anaerobic Digestion Systems 15th Annual Ports-to-Plains Alliance Conference October 4th, 2012Author: Mike Kotelko, Founding Director
  • 2. Himark BioGas Inc.What we do: Who we are:Technology Commercialization • Bern & Mike Kotelko • Portfolio includes the market-leading AD o Founders technology • Evan & Shane Chrapko • Deploying our technology globally where o CEO’s it enhances our clients’ economics and operations • A growing team of business professionals, scientists, engineers andTechnology Development technologists • Developing technologies that maintain our differential advantage in AD • Offices in Canada (HQ), USA, China, the • Enhancing the value proposition of Middle East and North Africa technologies through integrating with other biofuel technologies. Making waste the renewable solution
  • 3. Trending Green In1995 HFL began investigating alternatives for processing manure  The initial driver was the global trend towards environmental and nutrient management regulations for intensive livestock operations. Highmark Renewables was founded in 2001  R & D project began to develop a process that could handle dry, high solids manure produced at the volumes and conditions in North American style feedlots.  In February 2005 the only Thermophilic AD plant of its kind was up and running at HFL. Making waste the renewable solution
  • 4. Anaerobic DigestionAD converts organic WASTE to ENERGY•Nearly any organic waste is suitable feedstockNatural process - harnessed and optimized•Biological, similar to brewing or yogurt-making, but continuousLow energy, low cost baseload power•More efficient and effective than gasification, pyrolysis, compostingProduces bioGas • Substitute for Natural Gas • Methane (CH4) is the main component • CO2, H2O(g), H2S, other micro componentsCo-produces ‘organic’ bio-based fertilizer/soil amendmentEnvironmental & social win • Reduce GHGs • Reduce odors • Completely Eliminate Common Pathogens • Improve soil quality • Maximize value of “waste” • Provides a sustainable nutrient management tool Making waste the renewable solution
  • 5. IMUS™ TechnologyIMUS™ technology package• Treat high-solid waste from: o Livestock operations including open- pen feedlots and dairies! o Food & beverage processing o Crop residues o BioFuels production o Other agricultural & industrial waste o Municipal SSO & wastewater• High Solid In-Feed System (HiSIS™) allows feeding of nearly any feedstock or combination of feedstocks• Clean-Slate™ System minimizes downtime• Customized designs at any scale• Produces renewable energy in the form of polished bioGas, which can generate heat and electricity• Produces bio-based soil amendments & bioProducts• Reduces GHG emissions Making waste the renewable solution
  • 6. Co-Location with EthanolConfiguration Options• Thermal Replacement Only • Biogas used to generate steam for ethanol process and biogas process, zero-out natural gas cost line in opex • Lowest capital investment, additional electrical costs in opex• Electrical Only • Biogas used to generate electricity for ethanol and biogas process, zero-out electrical cost in opex • Electrical Generation yields sufficient thermal energy for biogas process requirements • Higher capital investment• Total Energy Independence (and beyond) • Split use of biogas: 100% electrical replacement for both processes and 100% thermal. Zero-out both cost lines. Possible to export energy. • Most efficient (energy and capital) • Highest Capital Investment, Highest Return Making waste the renewable solution
  • 7. Case StudiesMaking waste the renewable solution
  • 8. GPHHConfiguration: • Alberta, Canada • New 10MMgal/year ethanol production (Wheat, Triticale or Sorghum) • 36,000 head co-located feedlot (existing) • Waste from nearby municipalities and businesses • IMUS™ facility capable of full energy offset + export of additional electrical energy • 2 x 7,200m3 (new) + 2x1600m3 (existing) Primary Digesters • HiSIS™, Clean Slate™ and Active Access™ • 2.5MW of power generation (1.5 new, 1 existing) • Remainder of biogas to fuel ethanol boilers • Ethanol likely to qualify for D5 RINs if exported to USA • Construction on latest phase started in Q4, 2011 • Expected production of ethanol in Q4 2012 Making waste the renewable solution
  • 9. GPHHMaking waste the renewable solution
  • 10. GPHHMaking waste the renewable solution
  • 11. GPHHMaking waste the renewable solution
  • 12. Configuration: • Kansas, USA • Existing 50MMgal/year ethanol production (Sorghum) • Already one of the most energy efficient ethanol plants running • 50,000 head near-by feedlot (existing) • Waste from other nearby feedlots, municipalities and businesses, syrup from ethanol plant • IMUS™ facility capable of complete thermal energy offset • 4 x 7,200m3 Primary Digesters • Large Tertiary digesters • HiSIS™, Clean Slate™ and Active Access™ • Biogas to fuel ethanol boilers • Future expansion to produce full electrical offset possible • Ethanol likely to qualify for D5 RINs • Engineering started in Q4 2011 • Expected production of biogas in Q4 2012 Making waste the renewable solution
  • 13. Making waste the renewable solution
  • 14. Making waste the renewable solution
  • 15. Integration of Energy and Food Production Taking Green the next step Making waste the renewable solution
